Captain Al is amazing! We took the trip as a family and we all had a blast. At the beginning of the day a bus picks you up from the cruise port and brings you to Captain Al’s dock. Everyone is sized with flippers and a fitting underwater face mask. Your captain (we had Al) brings you to different areas... More

We did the 4 hour snorkel trip on February 10th, 2015 and it was excellent. Captain Alan and Mia were really wonderful, fun and helpful. We saw sea turtles, lots of fish and even an octopus! Lunch was great - good sandwiches made by the captain himself! Captain Alan made some changes to our itinerary because of the weather and... More

Upon arrival, Captain Alan explained that the seas were exceptionally rough and the water was a little murky for snorkeling. He gave everyone the option to continue or cancel. I believe some may have continued, but we decided not to go. No problem. Transportation was immediately arranged back to the cruise port and all of our money for the deposit... More

My wife, three kids and I enjoyed the services of Captain Ian and first mate Debbie last Tuesday for the six hour tour. We were told to expect to get wet on the initial ride out, I definitely encourage folks to bring some googles to help with the gallons of water that "refreshed" us on our initial ride. :) We...

We booked our snorkeling adventure to coincide with our Royal Caribbean ship's stop at St. Maarten. There were four of us "senior snorkelers", and we had a blast. Captain Alan's arranged to pick us up at the ship dock and return us back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. You get a boat trip about a half... More

We were hesitant to go snorkeling on this particular day, because the wind and waves were extremely high! Captain Alan and his deck-hand Debbie made the trip out and back FUN, and he found us some excellent snorkeling spots in the lee of the islands. We were lucky to spot some Eagle Rays, many turtles, a Conch field, many corals,... More

My husband and I were fortunate to be in Captain Alan's boat last week, as he has 3 or 4 others. I was quite nervous about snorkelling, but he and Debbie were so kind and encouraging. We enjoyed every moment of this excursion and think of this delightful time 5 days ago in beautiful St. Maarten as we gaze out... More

Such a well run operation and really nice, friendly crew. I would go back any time. We went on the 6 hour tour and got in a lot of good snorkelling and were able to relax on board as well. They provided nice food and drinks and were relaxed but professional.
